Lyon after Charlie Hebdo – synagogues ‘virtual fortresses’

Lyon is a very good place to understand the tensions in France right now. Everyone is still reeling from the terrorist attacks at the offices of magazine Charlie Hebdo and a kosher supermarket in Paris in January. The country is in trauma and no-one knows what is going to happen next.

Liverpudlian Andrew Hussey studied in Lyon in the 1980s and remembers that it seemed to be normal in student circles to hate Jews, black people and Arabs, while there were teachers who propagated Holocaust denial…

    I’m sure this doesn’t cost anything.

      A bargain considering all that vibrant Muslim diversity enriching France.

    “Rabbi Wertenschlag says Jews are being targeted by the far right, but this is “minor” compared with the threat from radical Islamists. Lyon is a multi-racial city, with a big Algerian population. As well as anti-semitism, Islamophobia is also a cause for concern.”

    Jews demand multicult to dilute whites and make Jews less noticeable among more annoying aliens. The result is an influx of Muslims whose doctrinal hate for Jews makes Jews create strongholds to stay safe.

    Tough titties

        “as far as my experience goes they are also no better than other human groups, although they are protected from the worst cancers by a lack of power. Otherwise I cannot see anything ‘chosen’ about them.”

          Newsflash slick, it’s 2015

            I am in agreement with Einstein, there’s nothing special about them.

            Pointing out that the policies which were spearheaded and supported by a group has become a dangerous resulting situation today isn’t Nazism.

            I wonder what it will take to get rid of the Muslims… We all know that is the only solution in 2015. I guess we will just have to wait for the Muslims to begin the fight in earnest before we can do what is necessary.

          Gee a NY times reader. You must be a leftist dork smoker as well as a nazi piece of shit.

      That’s a generalization. We post lots stuff by Jews opposed to mass immigration. Should I be marking the posts “this was written by a Jew”?

      And the churches are totally on board with mass immigration.

    Regarding the horrible failure of multiculturalism, there are many groups to blame. Big business likes the cheap labor and depressed wages, progressive politicians like the votes.

      You seem to be talking more about American immigration than that of Europe. North America has experienced nowhere near the scale of MASSIVE Muslim immigration seen in Europe over the last two decades. Regardless of the reasons, Europe has signed its own death warrant by importing unmanageable and fast-breeding hoards of the most anti-Semitic, racist, violent, sexist, honour-obsessed, vengeful, dishonest, homophobic, backward, superstitious, tribal, and ill-educated people in the world. Well-done, Europe. It was one thing to be racked with guilt about what you did to the Jews, but why did you have to replace them with this?

    Of course the report has to add that in Lyon, “Islamophobia is also a cause for concern.” WHAT “Islamophobia”?
